Cupra R body restoration project shortvid series

May 15, 2024
Drove 1.9 TDI Leon for some years, loved it, then upgraded to Cupra R a year ago. BAM too fast, lost the license for some weeks and decided to use that time to stop the rust and repaint. Publishing shortvids of the progress in case you are interested. They are in Finnish but less talk and more content anyway.

Top coat will be done in a paint shop as I do not have a proper filtration ventilated space. Doors and hood will stay with current paint, other parts will be painted.

Part1: Starting situation, disassembly and sandblast

Part2: Rust repairs

Part3: Body epoxy & filler sprays

Next task will be the bumpers etc plastics.

Questions, comments, suggestions are welcome!
